Peer Review Process
Articles submitted to TALES are subject to a double-blind review process, with appropriate reviewers selected from an extensive inter-disciplinary panel.
Manuscripts meeting the Author Guidelines and passing the submission preparation checklist will be sent out for review within two weeks.
The timeline associated with the decision to accept/reject a manuscript submission may depend on the level of revision required and the theme and content of each journal issue. Authors are therefore asked to allow three months for the selection process.
TALES is published twice yearly.
